September 09, 2009

HAGERSTOWN -- A worker was injured Wednesday afternoon when he fell about 17 feet into an empty tank under construction at the City of Hagerstown's wastewater treatment plant off Frederick Street, Hagerstown Fire Department Battalion 2 Chief Randy Myers said.

The worker was helping build the concrete tank that will be used to treat sewage when he apparently fell off a ledge on the inside of the tank at about 3:30 p.m., Myers said.

The worker appeared to have arm and shoulder injuries and was taken to Washington County Hospital, Myers said. He did not know the worker's name.
